Public Sector Print Management
Environmental health and sustainability goals are interwoven with most U.S. Government agency procurement requirements including technology and MPS in particular.
Executive Order 13514, signed in October, 2009, sets sustainability, environmental and energy consumption, and performance goals for Federal Agencies. It requires Agencies to set a 2020 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target and provide ongoing status updates and reports.
The U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) IT procurement policies and vendor evaluations include the tracking and reporting of GHG emissions, sustainability and environmental goals.
- 95% of all new IT awards meet energy, sustainability and recycling targets.
- A preference for EPEAT products.
- Reduce paper volume and use at least 30% postconsumer fiber paper.
- Adopt environmentally sound recycling.
- Procure Energy Star and FEMP-designated equipment..
According to a recent survey nearly 80% of Agency purchasing decision makers said energy efficiency is among the most effective ways to meet energy needs, reduce costs and lower greenhouse gas emissions*.
- Cost savings and environmental benefits are the key motivators to becoming more energy efficient (66%).
- Significance of energy efficiency in operations has increased over the last two years (49%).
- Energy efficiency ranks as a top five priority (38%).
Our MPS suite was designed to meet and exceed Executive Order 13514. Early in our development cycle we met with GSA executives and others to learn how to best automate print fleet management for public sector clients and simultaneously help Agencies with their sustainability programs.
Our efforts paid off. We are significantly ahead of the competition in being an Agency's preferred MPS partner for either baselining and assessment, or MPS implementations.
An independent baseline assessment provides a solid foundation to create and implement a Print Management strategy.
